    INTRODUCTION The President of Zaire, Mobutu Sese Seko, arrived in Nouakchott, the capital of Mauritania, for talks on Thursday (3 February).

    SYNOPSIS: He was met at the airport by president Moktar Ould Daddah and several other Mauritanian officials.

    President Mobutu didn't have a defined itinerary for the one day visit, but a spokesman said he and President Ould Daddah were expected to discuss problems in southern Africa and bilateral relations.

    After his arrival, President Mobutu spoke to journalists at the airport. He said Zaire had done everything it could to try and unite the liberation movements in southern Africa. But now a great division has formed and Zaire deeply regretted this, he said.

    President Mobutu also officially opened a new teachers training college in Nouakchott. It was entirely financed by Zaire and is helping fill the gap in the available higher education in mauritania. The spokesman said the school symbolised the continuing friendship and ties between the two countries.

    President Mobutu's visit follows, his tour of Togo, Liberia, Belgium, Germany and France. He also briefed President Ould Daddah on that mission.
